As part of the ongoing Homeless at Home project, Storefront invited artists and members of the public to create simple stencil graphics dramatizing the widespread problem of homelessness in New York City. The project%u2019s initiators encouraged artists to use these stencils on streets and in public places to attract public awareness to the issue; supplementary materials provided by Storefront included contact information for lawyers who would offer assistance should the artists be challenged by the police. The exhibition at Storefront showcased all the designs produced in response to the open call coordinated by Glenn Weiss, Barbara Yoshida, Shirin Neshat and Carla Davis.
